over the last undecideds. governor romney promising to turn this economy around, president obama arguing it would have been worse if republicans would have been in charge over the past four years. with the final sprint on today we get the last pre election look at the unemployment situation in this country, the jobless rate ticking up last month to 7.9%, up from 7.8. some 12.3 million people unemployed. the number is higher when you add in the under employed, folks who want to be doing more than part time work, but are not, that number would jump to 23 million u.n. or under employed. both candidates hit the trail earlier and had this to say about the numbers. >> this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. [cheers and applause] >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. megyn: chris stirewalt the fox news digital politic

to supporters, and it also leaves the door open for mitt romney. and what you heard which is to say, this guy didn't deliver what he said he would, it's time to give somebody else the ball. megyn: when a difference from four years ago. i mean at this point in the election four years ago you could feel a momentum behind barack obama and people like you knew who was going to win that race. you know, it wasn't something that you could come out and say openly because you've got to keep an open mind, but it was clear that barack obama was going to win this election, and it is anything but clear this time around. >> no, you know, the analogy i would use is like two ships that are drifting into each other on election day. we don't know who has got the momentum, each side can make an argument about who is up, who is down, whose base is going to be more motivated, certainly in the president you hear as he is trying in the closing days, his tone for the last couple of weeks was mocking and derise i have of romney, now he's going into more high minded regret. he's sorry about how things are, he's sorry
